CRITICAL ACTION THIS WEEK - VISIT YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REP!

It's Valentine's Day today and President's Day tomorrow -- time to tell Congress we're not loving our current President's rotten TPP trade deal! Congress will be on recess all week, so this is a great opportunity to pay a drop-in visit to your member of Congress' district office to express your opposition to TPP and to arrange a scheduled lobby visit for the March Congressional recess. TradeJustice volunteers in a number of Congressional visits are already planning drop-ins. If you'd like to join or arrange a visit to your Representative's office, please email adam@tradejustice.net or call (718) 218-4523. We'll email you a packet of materials to bring to your visit and help you connect with other constituents in your Congressional district who may be able to join you on your visit -- or who may already be arranging one!
